opposition journalist patrick who says the revolutions were the west is only alienating levy and. so. robert gates said he's cautious about understanding who makes up the opposition and certain extent caution is commendable because this humanitarian intervention by the west in libya wasn't a planned strategy it was a war without any real i mean it was something to do with cynthy develop any real clear sense of who they're doing it on behalf of who the rebels are and what they want to achieve from its transitional national council of libya now completely orientated towards the west toward nato towards america they want to try and get accepted from obama from western leaders they're not looking towards the libyan people it means that information doesn't come from the libyan people it comes from this kind of political elites in libya who basically just tried to tell the west what it wants to hear recognition has to come from the libyan people it can't come
from the west it's not just about getting rid of gadhafi it's about bringing about a democratic libya which is very much a process that has to be struggled for by the people of libya you can't form libya into a democracy the solution doesn't come from the west removing gadhafi and i think it would be absolutely dreadful if this only end up killing the guy because gadhafi should be removed by libyan hands not by the way. in libya more nato air strikes have reportedly struck the capital tripoli following a defiant broadcast from girlhood r.t. and many other washington graphic obama nail had anders fogh rasmussen agreed to continue bombing as long as a levy a leader puts up a fight that searches lauren lyster reports the motivation of the u.s. led alliance is under scrutiny. several decades and wars later it's still the question that's top of mind when it
comes to the world's largest military alliance many people i think today wonder after the end of the cold war why nato lo and behold reality is that nato is busier than ever. set up to counter perceived threats from the soviet union the north atlantic treaty organization has plowed ahead without an enemy after the end of the cold war. some faith that the alliance lost its reason to exist instead what happened in fact and in violation of even the accords and the agreements at that time was nato aggressively expanded. and a larger alliance that once promised peace has instead pledged bombs in troops to afghanistan going on a decade. and in its latest endeavor the largest air strikes into libya despite uniting a new strategic goals back in november libya has launched the allies dischord some
countries don't want to actually you know shoot ground targets some. air targets which are not. amidst the in-fighting it's unclear what motives are really behind the planes flying in the name of nato over the african country is that the personal aspirations of a leader france was among the first to push for intervention france wants to get in on what i call the imperial condominium a really kind of quest of the african or is it the showcase in a new arms race military buyers love to have weapons that are tested in war if your weapon system does very well in a war you can count on sales going up in fact the only two planes now in contention for a ten billion dollar order of one hundred twenty six planes from india are the euro fighter typhoon and the french for fell the very ones french and british allies have been flying over this. is a good opportunity to oust the qaddafi regime it is u.s.
policy but get off it needs to go and prop up one more favorable to us foreign policy interests try to. cater. to its circuit which. of course describe it humanitarian. intervention a so-called humanitarian intervention that critics argue. was never warranted but which now may be causing a humanitarian crisis we didn't stop a bloodbath but we are prolonging and perpetuating the suffering of civilians in libya suffering that is now washing up on the shores of nato allies at the boat load of refugees though the united states has seemingly stepped back from libya the author is the number one contributor to nato and therefore many would see the u.s. really as being nato now this comes at a time when the conflict in libya on the ground more and more people are calling a stalemate and amid the hour like and fighting as well as rising costs and every sense that same question people have been asking for decades comes to mind to deal
with the. nato lauren lyster r.t. washington d.c. the libyan government claims a nato air strike has killed eleven muslim clerics in the city of bragg a coalition says the facility of bomb was being used to coordinate attacks on civilians and so nato activists of things the alliances and simulating the entire world with its libyan campaign we're talking about a. global force and. very smooth it will. serve as longer for seventy years ago if. it was. from the other nations around the world to receive to go see the movie versions in the united states britain france germany sweden the war. just going on that this is what you are through with this is working. if you don't

underway with most of the construction entering its final stages and side looks set to be crossing the finish line right on time the russian reviewer is basking in the developments that the country's most and to subpoena sporting event has brought with it argues that his velocity is in the region following the action. a miracle with the making of construction the city's bolshoi ice bellis is entering its final stage to less than two years to get this joint structure like most of the venues here in sochi it's being built on schedule. and all the facilities here except maybe for the main olympic stadium well have to be completed by two thousand and twelve so that they can be used during test competitions. with that mess of construction effort was launched in two thousand and seven and sochi won't be a limp it did deliver to construction sites no consumable didn't have the region's cement supplies over three hundred fifty thousand tons golden age and
a half thousand workers stay part of the project three hundred of them are foreigners the venues decide stadiums and ice rinks include routes tunnels bridges together with new schools and hospitals they believe the lasting legacy of this tropical black sea resort so there's great excitement high hopes this of the fresh city resting of the big event but i bet you can see the preparations there are being built the streets are cleaner and you feel more tourists will come the olympics will bring festive mood into town. i think the medals rubio was and was this team will be formed better at home. a cooler player hair and snow leopard have been recently picked as the olympic mascots less than three years time this dream team will greet the athletes and visitors of the two thousand and thirteen sochi winter games. one of the greatest sporting spectacles on the planet is just one thousand days away but if the goal to win big question is going to be as grand as
russia imagines every minute down to its completing the mammoth construction effort on time and then budget then as was the r.t.e. sochi. around this hour here our team there might evolve. join our team as we are on a journey along a long. this river in europe that's been the backbone of the russian economy and it is bracing for its culture. when by is probably best known as the birthplace of one of india's greatest acts words wally wood and like many of the country's more cosmopolitan cities and so on are going constant change thanks to an economic boom for the millions living there only one issue dominates their daily lives clean water artist chris ritter star just how hard life and limb by can be. mo my india the financial center for one of the fastest growing economies in the world. and the heart of india's beloved bollywood film industry well beyond the
glitz and glam there is another story playing out on the streets of india's most populous city. i pick up at six pm and walk to a village that is one in half every to get to book of soft drink in water. this is shannon monaco she's twelve years old and her life in mumbai literally revolves around finding water is cooler than it that i don't go to school because i have to work at home my mormon dad look as liberals and they have to go so i have to stay back and work at home from morning to evening in this it's actually more common to see a satellite dish bringing these people cable t.v. than it is to see a working tap to bring them water one point two million people in mumbai live in an authorised slums and are entitled to government services like a lot or even after walking hours to get to a tap the water only runs at specific times for sometimes as little as ten minutes
. while the people in the gospels community have managed to find a broken pipe in a gutter not far from their homes many indians are spending up to ten percent of their salaries to buy usable water water access isn't just a problem that affects people living in the slums actually thirty five percent of households in mumbai receive less than the desired one hundred liters of water per person per day and many of those people live in middle class communities. of sawan is mum by housewife despite living in a more modern apartment so wants to has to schedule her day around when she can get larger. we get water at four am for one and a half us since we just get it for just one and a ha far we have to wake up early and get all our work done so want us to fill the tank on her roof during the time the city gives her access to water and if she needs more than the tank of water she's able to fill she's out of luck barter is an issue that seems to affect everyone here in five of their is
a one man managed to escape the problem is game is will pay somebody and he's worked twenty seven billion us dollars and white house there are high for chronic hanging gardens swimming pool water and he reportedly uses five hundred thousand years of water every month it's something that angers many a.d.'s while most are used to seeing the great contrast between rich and poor on a daily basis they believe that it's access and waste that is unfair. you have come to give a monument on goodman. and there is a shortage of willing to give him more we came here to get him this and protested and for those who have no choice but to plan their day around water retrieval it's a painful reminder that even when it comes to basic necessities the wealthy elite still has the advantage. i feel bad in a house we get water for only one and a half hours whereas they have enough water even to waste it. a constant battle to
meet their dealing needs preassure either r t mumbai india. more on the way for you on our team glory to share or not to share as the u.s. decides whether to raise its debt ceiling americans speak out. well i think the only political system that's kind of relevant to christianity is socialism and i don't think jesus would be very happy with us not sharing. now international stories in brief for you israeli security forces clashed with palestinians in east jerusalem and the west bank on friday had a not by day some protesters hurled stones at soldiers who responded with with water cannons and tear gas reports say at least one person was killed and nearly a dozen were arrested now but day marks the founding of the state of israel in nineteen forty eight after which some seven hundred thousand palestinians flatterer

a. that have been demanding an end to the twenty year role of president aware of the leader remains defiant saying he will use all necessary means to defend his position. pakistan's lawmakers have slammed the american operation that killed osama bin ladin two weeks ago and call france to us drone attacks the latest drone strike reportedly killed five people in pakistan on friday washington has refused to hand taps and still hasn't apologized for keeping us on a bot in the dark over of the bin ladin right he's a military contributor thinks the us should have been more cautious nobody can give the us administration unique capability to muddle the waters and bungled the message last week the us president obama deployed to top u.s. officials to negate the negative impact from the overkill verbosity of that has come from the white house first it was u.s.
attorney general eric holder who tried to change that perception about whether the direct orders for the you'd be able to raid war to kill or capture and then is going to stray ssion dispatched the u.s. national security adviser thomas danny. both did their best to cover political interference into a cold bird special forces missions in pakistan but in advertently compromised of the whole nature of the operation it was designed first and foremost as a political campaign not as this special operation before the author a somebody had to step up and talk to the media make sure they choose to get together hold your national security teams and delegate just one person who will have all necessary information and authority to speak on behalf of the u.s. president. well the u.s.
debt ceiling already had a staggering level americans are a less than happy about proposals to raise it and while obama and congress struggle to reach a compromise over all residents in the big apple or hard for us to look for a solution on the streets of new york. if the u.s. stops sparing money it could negatively affect the whole world economy if it continues to borrow money cliquey related burdens to having to carry so as the u.s. best approaches the debt ceiling over fourteen trillion dollars that congress just put into place in two thousand and ten should it consider raising that that feeling even more this week let's talk about that do you think they should raise the debt limit again i'm not sure they shoot but they will because they really have to that's how do we get to a place where we have to keep doing it. because. to my income expenditure if you have to cut out national parks if you have to try to saving that
turtle or you have to cut out some teachers' jobs maybe three percent here three percent if we were just small percent off of everything have to cut everyone has to give up something would you be willing to give up two more percent of your salary no tax no tax raises you'd be willing to pay more in taxes yeah a little bit i think is patriotic i do too what's with that people you know say that they're so patriotic and that they're american and they stand for america and they're not willing to pay more taxes for the country but i think the only political system that's kind of relevant to christianity is socialism and i don't think jesus would be very happy with us not sharing it's a shame with what's happening in america is disappearing this shouldn't be happening do you think middle america is aware of the corporate island of america it seems like people don't even realize how entwined they are you know i would agree with you i think middle america they're such good citizens nobody wants to make any do they want the rabble rousers you know they want to be in. in the whole
process will you see people from the economic humanity million dollars or seventy million or whatever or a.b.c. making forty five minute i mean what happens have to make their money back you know and they hire people to keep people working there what i would think would have much more value for everybody the world economies and same situation you know you look at what's happening with china. you know the economic situation for the time being are pretty bad there so got to regroup the whole system just me for to you whether or not you think the u.s. should raise the debt ceiling the bottom line is given the fact that we've done it seventy four times since nine hundred sixty two i think it's fair to say that it's going to be great again very soon. sorry we continue exploring russia was our closer team checking out the country's most fascinating places.
well this hour we are in the hall the rabri dense or one thousand kilometers southeast of moscow the region is divided by the mighty volga river the longest europe everywhere has long been a bad bowl of the russian economy as a desperation for its culture by the spy providing so much more maturity is also causing damage artists tell martin best and also whether the great river is the hottest or against. the mighty volga it runs deep in the russian so it is providing inspiration for songs and poems and is the country's main north south bronx and decades ago human ingenuity connected to the dawn river to the west as if in the middle of straits the first centuries people dreamt of connecting the two rivers now this canal essentially joins
distance east to get. the vote the john canal is an engineering marvel within a day a vessel can pass the canals thirty blocks ten million tons of shipping does so every year. another concrete giant is this finished fifty years ago it's the biggest hydroelectric plant in europe it powers the local city of volgograd and sends lots more electricity to moscow hydroelectric plant behind me is a potent example of how much the volga can provide but harnessing the river like this isn't without its cost. fishermen have been watching fish stocks for years they see the slow damage the downing of the river has done especially to russia's prized sturgeon the source of caviar who are going to visit the hydroelectric plant has done significant damage because it stocks fish swimming up river to the spawning grounds they turned back and start swimming downstream and now we don't. where they are. within
a year all these houses will go fall into the river. depending on how many of the hydroelectric plants turbines are on the water level can change suddenly and dramatically too suddenly for the banks to absorb it plays havoc with the canal to . so let's see if. we can only look through ships we have enough water full last year the water level dropped because of this hydroelectric plant and it caused big problems you could only look through smaller ships flooded ones. control of the river flow by the plant was made building the boulders for playing more attractive serious floods are less likely but the water that is put into the drains is taken away from the fish that need it. when people started building on the floodplain the places where the fish pond in flood anymore most of the spawning grounds are now gun now at last the voice of the voters ecology might stop being good after
fifty years of damage the can't make changes regime can release water for the rivers benefit not just its own. for the first time in fifty years the rules will contain a point on maintaining biodiversity in the river will still have a chance to bring the boulder back to life meaning that the mighty will get is treated with the respect it deserves john watson. remember there is much more at ardsley dot com and there's crying for you to explore including in doubt news coverage analysis and last russia scores find out how moscow and st petersburg hawaiian have the right to host the hockey world championship in two thousand and sixteen. and if you are born of that the exhibit center museum secretly come to life after the whole you know you now have a chance to find out as moscow's culture satyrs open all night for free as part of the international night of the museum project and get more details at our.
for the full summit we've got it for. the biggest issues get a human voice face to face with the news makers. as my name is daniel smith this is julian assange we're here to make a short presentation about the we can fix project. the first. in the fourth day if you can get information out about the real world. to him war on the fia and the matter in the rivers with the biggest are going to be good marketing. if i ever put any sources in danger
he would hunt me down and go. this is exactly one of the reasons why we left the project because it has become more about this all james bond. then about the actual information. thank you. old people around the lol. me. for sun this is just a parliament building in britain. but spent sixty six years ago it was the final target. and the last major offensive for the red army. its capture became the symbol of the fall of the fascist city. and the victory over nazi germany.
